null Board at the back: Kingston Transit asks passengers to use back doors until April 5
March 18, 2020 -
Effective Thursday, March 19, Kingston Transit passengers are asked to board and exit buses using the back doors. Passengers with accessibility needs can continue to use the front doors for boarding and exiting, but are asked to limit their interactions with bus operators.
Kingston Transit will not be accepting cash fares or paper transfers from passengers boarding at the back of the bus, and passengers will not be required to tap their transit passes at this time.
This change is in place until April 5, 2020, and protects the health and safety of bus operators.
To limit the spread of COVID-19, Kingston Transit continues to:
- ensure increased sanitizing practices on all common touchpoints aboard buses.
- deliver essential public transportation service across Kingston on a reduced Saturday and Sunday schedule.
- ask passengers to exercise social distance when seating themselves on the bus, including not sitting in seats directly behind operators
- assist passengers with lost and found and trip planning service by phone only at 613-546-0000.
We remind residents that Kingston remains a low-risk community.
The City continues to monitor the information released by the provincial Ministry of Health and other public health partners, including KFL&A Public Health.
